Andrew Lang Quotes

Please enjoy these encouraging quotes by Andrew Lang.

He missed an invaluable opportunity to hold his tongue.
- Andrew Lang

He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp posts -

Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.
We leave our most profoundly positive impact
on those around us by the nature of our lives
and the example we set -
not by how busy we are,
or how important we believe we are.
Setting an example of being loving, relaxed and joyful,
regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.
I want my tombstone to read, "Inspired others,"
rather than, "Never missed a day at the office."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

For everything you have missed,
you have gained something else.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.
Because things are not the target,
you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

Opportunity is missed by most people
because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

For everything you have missed,
you have gained something else,
and for everything you gain,
you lose something else.
